AT A GLANCE
Water: bringer of life, solvent, penetration enhancer, and vital skincare ingredient.
It sounds boring, but water is actually one of the most important ingredients in many skincare formulas. It dissolves active ingredients; it helps certain ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin; it allows for elegant formulas ranging from lightweight hydrating serums to rich non-greasy creams. Any formula with water in it also requires broad-spectrum preservatives to prevent microbial growth.
